@rankftw
cause then you have to pay the europe price and that isnt good because it is nearly double in american dollars. $10 becomes $20. No thanks.
PELVIC THRUST ACTION  +   1540d ago
Too bad
Euro versions are usually the PAL versions and those are significantly slower then NTSC versions AND PAL does NOT work in America. Keep that in mind.

lol SE gets alot of flak by the ps3 fanboys. I'm sure they'll get a kick knowing that these fanboys are gonna come crawling back for games.

@PELVIC
Well PS classics are meant to work on the PS3 and PS3s are not region locked, so anything you download from the store will work. I've downloaded content from the JP store like demos and such, and they work just fine.

Would you buy a DS? That might do it.

Edit:
Nevermind..thinking of chrono Trigger.

i played the crap out of chrono cross. what a classic.
hatchimatchi  +   1539d ago
yea, most of the square psx era rpgs are available online for cheap & brand new.

Also, the ds version of chronotrigger is just a port of the psx version with an optional dungeon. It's cheaper for the psx and it also comes with FFIV.

Yeah, me too, but would still be a nice release for people that don't. Mainly for people that have never played it, but give it a try through PSN. The graphics in the game are semi-2D, so the game has aged a lot better than some of the ps1 games (like FFVII and Vagrant Story, although both amazing games, just have to get used to it if first time playing).
Ascalon94  +   1540d ago
my friend was telling me about that game the other day praising it for how good it was. It came out in Japan for PSN in 2008, we might get it eventually
thelastawakening  +   1540d ago
i doubt they would release it ,, it would make people think , i still have my black case copy,, its thae one game I'll never get rid of
Adaminy  +   1539d ago
they'll release zenogears eventually. no way they hold out on that one.
pinkyxyz  +   1540d ago
parasite eve 1 and 2. end statement
killyourfm  +   1540d ago
It's impossible for Parasite Eve 2 to come to PSN because of licensing issues.
RustInPeace  +   1540d ago
Why? Who owns PE2? Its been so long since I played them I don't remember, but I know Square made them... who owns the rights for it though?
Denethor_II  +   1540d ago
I found a copy of Parasite Eve 2 for three pounds in mint condition, needless to say I was pleased with my self.
Alos88  +   1540d ago
I bet Europe won't get this one, not that I'd mind as much as I did with Xenogears...
hanzthebox  +   1540d ago
hmm..
I was waiting for xenogears ):
Redlogic  +   1540d ago
yes!
Is xenogears available in the US PSN?
hanzthebox  +   1540d ago
no -_-
dkgshiz  +   1540d ago
Well...
I'm not sure about you people but nearly all of the PSN classic games I still own on the PS1. Theres no reason for me to ever buy these games when I can already play them on my PS3.
Redlogic  +   1540d ago
really?
cool story dude...i sold my games a long long time ago

Why would you sell your games?
You get absolutely nothing for them. Just keep them.
killyourfm  +   1540d ago
Because playing them on PSP is awesome?
HelghastKid  +   1540d ago
exactly. nothing like playing FF7 on a road trip
Denethor_II  +   1540d ago
Agreed.
DaTruth  +   1540d ago
80% of my PSP games are PSOne classics!
Silly gameAr  +   1540d ago
Kind of lame.
lightningsax  +   1540d ago
Figured that's why the title of the game wasn't in the headline's title. I'm still waiting for a US release for Einhander... still... waiting... *snore*...

Anyone in desperate need of a classic rpg experience
Should go out and get Nier. It's a really good rpg. It plays like classic ps1/2 rpg's with some new school gameplay and it's an action rpg. IT does a lot of things right and i'm glad I picked it up. Why wait for a ps1 rpg to be rereleased on psn when you can get a new game you've never experienced.

Don't listen to most reviews that bash it for not having killzone 2 graphics. It's a really good game. The new gen hates it cause it's not mass effect 2...Yea like that was really an rpg.

well said
Nier is criminally underrated
RBLAZE1988  +   1539d ago
That's an understatement...
lol but it should at least be an 8.5 on metacritic for being so fresh. I swear every time I load Nier up and advance the story and go to a new location it doesn't cease to surprise me. The part when you have to find the mother for the kids in the junk heap reminds me of some of the stories in lost odyssey. Nier is a great game and the entire industry should recieve lashings for rating the game down so much. Some big publications and web sites gave the game a 3....that's rediculous. But they rate mass effect 2 a 9 or 10 and that's not even an rpg really. To me it's a tactical 3rd person shooter with character recruitment abilities.

Magnus  +   1539d ago
I'd like Xenogears, Tobal, and Erigez braught to the PSN from Square
RandomGamer  +   1539d ago
Mega Man Legends 1&2
I would love to see Mega Man legends 1 and 2 one the psn. I know not everyone thinks there classics but i loved them,and considering half the so called classics on the psn are garbage why can't they put these on.
almasy919  +   1539d ago
Vagrant Story and Bushido Blade. A chocobo game? Seriously square?
